1955 Los Angeles Auto Show Part Four: Buick

Though the Buick ad did not include dealership addresses, this is a nice shot of Beverly Buick which I found here.  The building still exists, at least.
A 1955 Buick promo model from my collection.  Models like these were often given to the customers' children as well as very graphically showing the various color combinations.  The dealership models did not have friction motors.  The versions with them were sold in toy stores and hobby shops across the country.  I wanted all of them.
